We all know Blake Lively as a fabulous, fashionable mega-star. But did you realize her incredible journey to super stardom started from a very early age?
Blake, 33, first made global headlines during her run as the fun and feisty Serena van der Woodsen in the hugely popular series ‘Gossip Girl’. However, she has actually graced our screens a number of times before then!
What shows and movies might you have missed the beautiful Blake in? Keep on scrolling to find out!
Destined For Success
It seems that Blake was born to be an actress.
She grew up in a showbiz household, with her mother, Elaine, a talent scout, and her late father, Ernie, also an actor. In fact, all four of her siblings, Eric, Lori, Robyn, and Jason went on to work in entertainment!
With a pedigree like this, how could she not succeed?
But it was more than just a connected family that propelled Blake into stardom. Read on to discover what truly set her apart from an early age.
High School Superstar
It turns out Blake has been acting from pretty much the moment she learned how to speak!
Instead of leaving her with babysitters while they taught acting classes, her clever parents brought her along to sit in and soak up the lessons.
Could these classes have had an impact on the success of the young Blake? If you consider she landed her first role at age 10, in the movie ‘Sandman’, it seems likely!
But her big break would not come until a few years later… high school, that is! Keep reading to see which role made her career.
From Gossip Girl To It Girl
Her turn as the sporty Bridget in the iconic film ‘The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ made Blake an overnight sensation. Amazingly, she was still in high school when she starred in the production, completing the film between her junior and senior years.
This led to a role in the global smash hit ‘Gossip Girl’, which practically cemented her celebrity.
But Blake isn’t just a pretty face. Her role in the critically acclaimed film ‘The Town‘ proved that she had impressive acting skills at her disposal.
So, what’s next for our favorite fashionista? Read on to see.
A Lively Success
Blake continues to keep busy and overachieve, both on and off screen.
The couple share three gorgeous girls, James, 6, Inez, 4, and Betty,1. But Blake isn’t just busy being a mom!
She recently starred in the action thriller ‘The Rhythm Section’, and is said to be filming a new film named ‘The Husband’s Secret’.
Will Blake ever settle down and take a break from being fabulous? We sure hope not!
